No need for law imposing physical restrictions on signature gatherers
I wish to speak up for the infringement on free speech that would be imposed on those who oppose initiative signature gatherers [“I-517: expands free speech or allows intrusive tactics?” NWSunday, Oct. 20].
There are already laws on the books regarding assault by one citizen upon another, so it would be redundant to incorporate the language of such behavior into an initiative. Since it is public areas that are under discussion in the initiative, I don’t think it is right to restrict another person from occupying a space close to signature gatherers while expressing his or her own views.
